In the Apollonio wine you will find the story of four generations living for, producing and dreaming of wine, inspired by the ancient musty smell. The cradle of this story is the land of Puglia, whose territory and climate make it one of the best Italian regions producing excellent wine. The grapes used, grown in endless vineyards, are carefully chosen and worked, and then let age in barrels and bottles in the fresh air of a winery in Monteroni. Apollonio’s story is long and intense.
It’s 1870 when Noè starts producing and marketing wine. His son, Marcello, modernizes the firm during the belle époque. His excellent nose for business and the help of his large Family allow him to make the qualitative leap: Marcello sets up the factory, plants the vineyards, harvests, makes wine and sells it. His farmhands, both men and women, work for him every day, even at night. Marcello’s personal participation lightens their work and he often shares a lavish meal with them for a refreshing break.
